Special Piano Coaching

If you are able to perform at the piano competantly, but you feel that your music making isn't as powerful or as refinded as you would like, I offer detailed music coaching.  In these sessions, we will 

explore and work on:

  • perfecting your sound
  • enhancing your sense of phrase structure and balance
  • broadening your musical concepts
  • enhancing your musical storytelling at the piano

At the end of the day, the most interesting musicians are those who are able to use their instrument to tell a powerful and captivating story musically.  The pieces you perform will have greater character with a wider range of expression.  This, along with 

increased confidence and skill, are what special coaching can do for you.
